Message to Joe Offer.

Hi Jo. Yes you are right!
Whenever this subject comes up, either here or in any other place, it tends to escalate. As I'm sure that you are aware, the whole CM debate is a very sore point here in the UK (Quite what you guys in the US and elsewhere make of it all, I don't know!)

When this thread started, it was originally referring to a BBC Rado Documentary about seminal albums that had dropped off the Radar over the years.

I was very surprised in fact that anyone had remembered Bright Phoebus at all.

As I said yesterday, I fully expected a few days of the usual grumbling from the usual subjects (Including myself), and then it would slowly go away again.

Instead, This poster known as Tyke, has on a daily basis, fanned the flames, and I for one have sadly risen to his bait. For which I apologise.

As you say "If it is a Bulmer thread, then there is going to be trouble"

Sadly, you couldn't be more correct. And until some sort of resolution occurs, this subject will keep popping up.

You say you've had complaints? I would ask who from, but I'm not going to, that would be unfair!!! I can guess though. (I think I can safely say that it's unlikely to be from the artists side of the argument, which means.....)
But, point taken. It's a US forum, and I for one thank you and Max for allowing us UK bods in to play. I will try to curb my temper a bit more, but I'm only human, and when I see friends suffering and/or dying without justice, it's slightly annoying.

I'll consider myself spanked!

Cheers Ralphie
